GOC names updated university courses

University courses that will deliver new education and training requirements from autumn 2023 have been named by the General Optical Council. 

The GOC said 12 qualifications adapted to the new standards and outlined how they would meet them, and would be subject to routine quality and assurance processes.  

Steve Brooker, GOC director of regulatory strategy, said: ‘We are pleased to see so many providers ready to deliver updated qualifications, following the introduction of our new education and training requirements in 2021.  

‘It has been a cross-sector effort to achieve this, and I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved, including providers, for engaging constructively with our processes and GOC staff who have supported providers as they transition.’
